In 1915 he enlisted in the German army and served in (Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, and White Russian) Russia. While there during the war, he produced a large number of prints with subject matter that included: the landscapes of the small towns inhabited by Jews; Jewish character studies and studies of German officers and enlisted men as they went about their housekeeping duties and leisure-time activities on the war front.
